Open up the board to the whole Hema community?

Post by Roger N » Mon Feb 22, 2010 1:07 pm

Hi everyone!

Since the discussions on this board haven't quite take off as I had hoped it would, I am considering opening it up to the whole Hema community.

Certain sections can still be held private for individual designated members and groups if there is such a need.

Still, the whole purpose of the board will be to advance the study of European polearms.

Does anyone have anything against this?

Have a great day, everyone!

I think that's a great idea, Roger!

Good to hear! I really hope to see a bit of broadening of the Hema studies. :)

I think it's quite inevitable that one discusison leads to another and hence new experiences and different weapons. I see no problem with this, however it would be nice if focus would still be on polearms.

Yep, I will make sure that the focus remains on polearms. Sometimes it will slip towards other weapons, just as I did a comparison with Umbschnappen for both longsword and polearms...

The board is open to the whole community now, but I haven't advertised it on the other boards. You are all welcome to invite other practitioners though. :)

Just thought I'd tag on to this thread to say 'hi!'

Thanks for setting this forum up Roger. Good to see a dedicated staff and polearm forum! The longstick/short staff/short spear is probably my chief interest at the moment, so it's great to have a place to discuss it.

Cheers,

Bill
